Guide to Seawatch Data
The spreadsheet is now a series of separate entities. Sheet 1 is the main day by day spreadsheet. Sheet 4 is not in use yet. High Counts is just that it records the highest daily count for each species and the date that occurred. Additions identifies all the additions to the park list and the date they were first seen. Canaveral National Seashore is a spreadsheet covering the counts I did there in the 1990’s. Banded is a record of banded Red Knots that have been seen at the park. Five records or less is a record of the rarest species and the dates on which they were seen. C.B.C. is the Halifax River Audubon Societies Christmas Bird Count but ONLY SHOWING THE TOM RENICK COUNTS. Finally, the main spread sheet got so large that the earlier years have been separated off.
"High Counts" is a condensed list of the species observed at this location and the highest day counts for each species. Very interesting!
In addition to High Counts, another view of the observations at this location involves the annual Christmas Bird Count. Harry has manned this post for 12 years in the Daytona Beach Count Circle conducted through our chapter. Here is the summary of those counts.
Now for a little wishing - Harry has compiled a list of birds never seen at this location, but potentially possible. Interested in the list?
A summaries of observations 2016 through 2022 has been compiled. It is available on the following link.
Six annual reports for this location have been compiled, complete with text and illustrations.
In addition to the spreadsheet, each Month Harry provides a newsletter with a short synopsis of his observations and comments on trends and unusual sightings.
